The Hoyas tallied two more runs in the second after Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) hit a homerun with Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) on second.

The Blue & Gray kept the momentum going in the third, with Taylor Koenig (Akron, Ohio/Walsh Jesuit) hitting a single up the middle to bring Anttila home to score.
